Happy Summer Solstice

Mosaic_CancerThursday the Sun will enter Cancer, sign of our emotional foundations, home and family. I invite you to visit http://maryjowevers.com/blog/ and read my posts and articles on Cancer and The Moon.

In the ingress chart for the Summer Solstice the Sun is conjunct Jupiter in Gemini. Shine your conscious awareness on your inner, emotional nature this month. What do you need to feel safe and secure in the world? Sharing your feelings, communicating with others about your needs will uplift you, help you feel more optimistic, and give you a broader perspective.

Mercury, Venus and Ceres are in later degrees of Cancer. Our information filter to the world can feel especially sensitive and vulnerable. Be careful of overindulging in sentimentality, moodiness, or clinging to the past while nurturing your emotional self.

The four planets in Cancer disposit to the Moon in Scorpio, which can be particularly possessive, deeply passionate, and tenaciously withholding. Keep negative, turbulent emotions in check. Use your depth of feeling to identify that which is no longer useful to you, must be eliminated from your life, or needs to be transformed.

Scorpio disposits to Pluto in Capricorn, squaring Uranus in Aries. Revolutionary acts of self-expression challenge old, established conventions and institutions. We feel vulnerable as our emotional need for security is threatened. Take action by voicing your needs and concerns with emotional sensitivity.

A cardinal sign, Cancer marks the beginning of a new season, a new cycle. Use this energy to rebirth your soul in the cosmic womb.
